The All Progressives Congress [APC], Rivers State Chapter has condemned in the strongest terms, what it described as the wanton and illegal dismantling of state structures by the care-taker governor of Rivers State, Chief Nyesom Wike.
“The opening stanza of Wike’s journey down the impunity road took a turn for the worse last night when, a few hours after the newly convened Rivers State House of Assembly of slapstick comedians held a Kangaroo session claiming to investigate the Rivers State Independent Electoral Commission [RSIEC] and the Rivers State Judicial Commission, recommended the dissolution of the two bodies. A couple of hours later, Chief Wike announced the dissolution of the two commissions despite the fact that their tenures are guaranteed by law”, the publicity secretary of Rivers APC, Mr Chris Finebone said in a press statement today.
The party observed that the signs that the RSHA was acting out a script of the governor was all too glaring early in the day when the oddball assembly men conducted a rather hatchet session demanding on-the-spot explanation about discreet financial figures concerning costs of the last Local Council elections despite the fact that no advanced notice was issued availed the Chairman of RSIEC, Prof Augustine Ahiauzu and the Commissioners to come with such requirements to the sitting.
The statement read:
“The orgy of illegality now being unfolded in Rivers State has not come as a surprise to peace loving Rivers people especially members of the APC given the antecedents, character and track record of Chief Nyesom Wike especially within the milieu of governance and politics.
“The APC would like to remind Chief Wike that we are clearly aware that he is bent on gradually dismantling structures of government in Rivers State with a view to conducting his well-planned programme of vendetta, witch-hunting and reprisal against the immediate past governor of Rivers State, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and his supporters. We would also like to remind him that as much as he is set to please his sadistic inner being screaming for the heads of the innocent, he should remember, that that which he keeps the female, the male is residing elsewhere.
“Let it be known to the caretaker governor of Rivers State, that even as he is at liberty to strut the political space of Rivers State for the next few months as governor, morning shall come even more sooner than later.
“Again, it is important to remind Chief Wike that if he insists on continuing on his path of infamy, trying to victimise and primitively take revenge on Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and his supporters, he will fail woefully because Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi has moved to a higher level and never will share same life station with the caretaker governor in life ever.
“The APC will employ all necessary means within the law to resist and derail Nyesom Wike’s train of impunity which he has just unveiled. The APC shall stop him and his motley band of political jesters from unleashing their orgy of vendetta on the good people of Rivers State
